Question:
Started reading Rise To Victory but may have to put it down due to all the foul language! Why all the "F" words? Not needed! There are several great authors that write sub warfare books that do not use this language and they are doing pretty well! Would love to see you clean up you language.
Answer:
Posted: 5/2/2018
Thank you so much for the comment! I completely agree with you. If I could do it over again, I would make the language in RISE TO VICTORY, PRIDE RUNS DEEP, and SINK THE SHIGURE more appealing to a wider audience. Those books were released as main stream fiction, which, at the time of their publication, seemed to require a brazen use of profanity for success. In my current and future books, I am attempting to portray the gritty nature of life at sea without going too far. Thanks again for the great comment! God Bless - RCC

Thank you, Chief! I'm glad you enjoyed PRIDE RUNS DEEP. I take that as quite a compliment coming from a true diesel boat sailor. Thanks for looking past my errors, of which I'm sure there were many, and for your years of service in those good old boats. DBF! God Bless - RCC
Question:
Hello Cameron. Are you going to be releasing "Dive Beneath the Sun" in paperback? If so, when?

Thank you for your interest! I am pleased to announce it will be available on Amazon in paperback format as of February 2017. - RCC
Question:
I am enjoying "Sink the Shigure". It is one of those books that one can not seem to put down until it is read completely. I started my career in diesel boats, but had to give it up due to inner ear problems. I am therefore particularly interested in these actions. I went to destroyers, and so enjoyed the description of that action as well. I hope to find the other two books soon. OSC(SW) Chic Sale USN (Ret.)

Dear Chic, I'm so glad you're enjoying it! I hope it continues to satisfy! I'm always thrilled to get feedback from the surface community, especially destroyer sailors. Thank you, Chief, for your long and dedicated service to our country! God Bless - RCC
Question:
Get qualified Commander. First of all if the conn was flooded you would blow safety not auxiliaries. There are two main motors not four. Negative is amid ship not forward. The auxiliary man of the watch blows tanks, not the chief of the watch and Fairbanks Morse engines are 10 cylinder engines not 16. Other than mistake like that Sink the Shigure is a good story F

Dear Larry, Thanks for the great info! I always appreciate finding out where I got things wrong, so I can do it better next time. I know those kind of mistakes can distract from the story. I hope mine were not too distracting. Thanks again for the feedback. You know your stuff! - RCC
Question:
I was wondering, will there be a sequel for Rise to Victory, revealing the events of Deans and Captain Christopher's court martial, as well as Lt. Lake's future?
Answer:
Posted: 10/4/14
Dear Jacob, I might do a sequel with the same boat and crew, but I probably will not go into detail about the follow-on events in RISE TO VICTORY, except maybe to reference them. I always envisioned that Christopher got what was coming to him in the end. I'm thrilled that you want to know more! Thanks for the great question! - RCC
Question:

Question:
Dear Mr Cooke First thank you for your service sir! I just finished reading your three books and I'm fixing to start Constantine Covenant. I have to say I really enjoyed them. I used to work in Norfolk with a sonar operator who started my fascination with submarines. It's hard to imagine what those guys went through during WW2. Your novels helped me to remember the sacrifice these guys made for us all. Please tell me your writing some more books. Thanks again.
Answer:
Posted: 5/19/14
Dear Corey, I'm so glad you enjoyed them! Those sonar operators are a special breed. I have spent many a watch in the control room counting on their unique skills to give me sight in the dark. I am indeed writing a new book. It is a novel, set during the Civil War. I will post new info as it gets closer to completion. I'm not yet sure when that will be...Thanks for your post. All Best - RCC
Question:
Dear Mr. Cooke, I just finished your heart-stopping novel "Sink the Shigure". I read it practically in one sitting as the characters pulled me into the story. I have spent a good portion of my life in Africa leading safaris and reading more adventure books than I can count -- from Wilbur Smith to Clive Cussler. I personally found your characters far more believable and three-dimensional. Your dialogue is real-life. The plot twists are true to the story and your characters become living-breathing people --ones you really care about. You are a true original. I greatly look forward to reading your other novels , and future ones as well. With admiration from one of your readers, Dick Houston President Elefence International, Inc.

Dear Mr. Houston, I count myself very fortunate to be listed anywhere with those two gentlemen. Thank you so much for your comment. As I write this next novel, I'll be thinking about you reading it on safari! All Best - RCC
